Switch Aggregator Switch Kit

Switch Aggregator in Six with 1st Ever Switch Kit

Envestnet | Yodlee and FinGoal have recently partnered to build the first-ever aggregation switch kit.

Historically, changing data aggregator providers is time-consuming, incredibly disruptive and eats up valuable engineer time. The result? Many financial institutions abandon the idea and stick with their current aggregator, despite broken connections, messy data, coverage gaps and over-priced data.

But those days are over. Because what was “mission impossible” is now, “switch in six minutes”, thanks to Envestnet® | Yodlee® and FinGoal.

Envestnet | Yodlee and FinGoal have recently partnered to build the first-ever aggregation switch kit. The kit is a translation layer API that allows any engineering team to replace their current data aggregator with Envestnet | Yodlee’s enrichment without delay. In fact, by using the Quickstart Guide, developers can make the switch and their first API call in six minutes or less. The switch to full production at scale can happen within days.

Count on seamless switching

Through advanced mapping of data schemas, this kit seamlessly replaces the previous aggregator with Envestnet | Yodlee Aggregation, Instant Account Verification (IAV), and Enrichment capabilities as desired. What’s more, workflows stay constant. Developers can expect things to continue to work the same way they always have, as the Switch Kit replicates the idiosyncrasies of the previous aggregator so nothing breaks.

This solution offers an elegant transition with little to no impact or added friction for end users. The switch won’t cause link breakages or outages for users. Instead, it is an ongoing transition. As links break with the previous aggregator connections or accounts need to be re-authenticated, the user is prompted to verify those accounts and “make the switch” to Envestnet | Yodlee.
